It's funny how kids love it when you go away, because they KNOW you will bring them some gifts back...like having more than one birthday or Christmas in a year. My grandkids are the same. Oscar's daddy is here in Australia for less than a week....for his grandmothers funeral and a quick catch up with family and the mentor office. Oscar thinks his daddy is bringing him home a teddy! I had told Oscar last time I was with him, that I would make him a teddy sometime. So I guess if my grandson expects me to produce a teddy...I had better do it. Its taken me 2 whole days to make a teddy out of a kangaroo hide! Why oh why did I choose leather to sew with??...its such tough stuff. But its SO soft and he has turned out cute!
